Aretha Franklin Still Beefing With Dionne Warwick Via FAX MACHINE Is Just One Example Of Hollywood's Longest Running Feuds!

no title

Aretha Franklin is still upset with Dionne Warwick, over five years after the latter incorrectly labeled her as Whitney Houston's godmother at the funeral.

To Aretha, who was absent from the sad event due to suffering from swollen feet, this was not R-E-S-P-E-C-T-ful. And she recently said as much to the AP, in a lengthy fax calling the comments "libelous." In a followup phone interview, she said:

"She blatantly lied on me… fully well knowing what she was doing."

Apparently Aretha feels this misinformation was incredibly damaging to her. So much so that the feud continues in person.

When both performed last week at the Tribeca Film Festival in support of the documentary Clive Davis: The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, Dionne tried to bury the hatchet — but it wasn't happening! Aretha recalls:

"She said, 'Give me a hug.' I said, ‘Oh hell no. You couldn't be serious.'

Damn, girl! Of course, this is far from the longest grudge we've heard of…

Bristol Palin Says Elton John, Aretha Franklin, & 9 Other Artists Are All 'Sissies' For Skipping Trump's Inauguration…

no title

She can see sissies from her house!

Bristol Palin's biggest claim to fame — apart from her mother's name — is her time spent on Dancing with the Stars… which technically makes her qualified to speak for fellow reality TV villain Donald Trump, to some degree.

Man, political punditry has gone downhill… and it started so low to begin with…

As you're surely aware by now, the current President-elect/former Celebrity Apprentice host is just three weeks away from being sworn into office, and yet he STILL doesn't have any A-Listers scheduled to perform for his inauguration!

Sure, Jackie Evancho, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and at least some of The Rockettes will be there on January 20… but we're more intrigued by who's NOT going. And so is Bristol, apparently.

In fact, the 26-year-old mother-of-two just called ELEVEN different artists who've publicly declined Trump's invitation "Sissies" in a blog post on Wednesday!!

That's right — Elton John, Céline Dion, Aretha Franklin, Katy Perry,
